allergy to spice

I have an "allergy" to spice, but can't identify which spice...I believe it is linked to red pepper, paprika or similar. Situation: any food eaten at Popeye's and only some hot wing type spices at other restaurants will cause me to have a tremendous nose bleed immediately. Interestingly the new hot wings McDonald's has recently made is the first "hot tasting" item of food that I have no problem eating! The managers said it is a "rub"......of course, I cannot get ingredients from the restaurants involved other than Popeye's showing me their list on a box which had red pepper spice mix.

Currently I avoid all red pepper, paprika and Mexican "hot" items but would like to know which is really the culprit...Can you help?

What is this?

A friend of mine sent me the attached picture and asked me what it was. I am from NM and the pic was taken on a farm near Boulder, CO. Can someone tell me what these are? They appear to be insects or exoskeletons.

Is there a national listing of extension agents? Is it available on line? I am a former extension specialist and we had a printed booklet of all agents nationwide back in the 70's.

Are these creatures in the riverfront sand?

Last Saturday, I spotted interesting patterns of nicely curved grooves in the sand in Sellwood Riverfront Park on the east shore of the Willamette River. I noticed what I thought were small dark pebbles at the end of many of the trails, and assumed that the pushing of river water from boat wakes and water level changes, etc, was responsible for creating the exotic grooves. I discovered upon viewing the photos at full resolution that the "pebbles" appear to have a biological structure. The objects I describe are approximately .5 to 1.0 inches in length.
All of these paths I observed were scrawled all over an 8-to-12-foot wide swath of saturated sand at the water's edge on the gently sloped riverbank. They were very numerous along several hundred feet of the river's path.

Are these some type of creature moving on their own, or perhaps just some kind of seedpod that the water moved around? It seems more likely to me now that they were moving on their own when I look at the characteristics of the paths, but I'm certainly no expert. I noticed no movement at the time but did not look for it as I thought they were pebbles. I have attached a crop from one of my pictures showing the objects and their paths. Please let me know if you are able to identify them. Thanks!
