Discovered the connection to many health problems today, the S2 protein allergen
Table containing Summary of 2S Allergens https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2570561/table/T1/ ... from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2570561/ - [table pdf saved in G3200] Echo at: https://benthamopen.com/ABSTRACT/TOBIOCJ-2-16
Listed are items (oils) that have 2S protein and affect me:
Cottonseed oil – in Testosterone Cypionate - Major allergy, picture link below, took months to identify cause.
Sesame seed - - in Testosterone Enanthate - Allergy, showed up in about a month?
Walnuts - not feeling well after eating noted about a year ago, may test again, after skin clears up.
Allergen name of Ber e 1 , includes walnut, cottonseed, sunflower, castor bean.
Will avoid ingesting items from same table: (Sunflower seed) (Sesame) (Yellow mustard)
Maybe avoid (Cashew nut) (peanuts) (Buckwheat) (Sunflower seed) (Soya , listed as minor)

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) most often occurs where your skin flexes — inside the elbows, behind the knees.
Oils are: Cottonseed oil in Testosterone Cypronate. Sesame seed oil in Testosterone Enanthate
Cottonseed oil's allergen is the 2S protein. As a water-soluble protein, the 2S albumin storage protein contains structural, functional and biochemical properties responsible for determining its allergenicity.... provokes an allergic reaction in certain individuals.
Allergic reactions caused by the 2S proteins include atopic dermatitis and, in severe cases, minor swelling or hives. Individuals suffering from atopic dermatitis caused by cottonseed oil will experience patches of red, itchy, flaky skin, with the insides of knees and elbows prone to this type of allergic reaction.
Sesame seed allergy is not new (it was first reported in the 1950s), but it has become increasingly common and now is one of the top 10 causes of food allergies.
Sesame oil is made by cold-pressing sesame seeds and is not refined, so retains most of its allergenicity. It is used ‘unrefined’ in food products and as a result it contains sesame allergens which can cause reactions to those allergic to sesame seed.
Sesame oil (sesamum indicum) is also used in pharmaceutical products

A few documentary photos and comments are shown at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/edhiker/sets/72157623576482270 ... The recent work shows in the last 55 photos of the album.
The highly flexible custom computer was built in Feb 2010. Before boot-up, any one of four operating system/data configurations can be chosen by toggle switch. During the last few days, a solid-state "drive C" was added, RAM was doubled producing quite a boost in performance. Processor runs at 3.2 GHz.
As of 11/11/16, they're four installations of Windows 10. The one on a 120GB SSD got today's attention. That drive, during formatting somehow wound up with 15GB unallocated space. Used EaseUS - Manage your partitions http://www.partition-tool.com/ Quickly resize, move, merge and split partitions without data loss to make better use of hard drive capacity.
- WORKED Perfectly - Recovered 14.57 GB of lost space (unseen, unallocated ) on the SSD.
Now, used space is 18.8GB, Free space is 92.2GB.
Next move is to transfer some applications to SSD

Bio-identical Hormone Therapy, Los Angeles. YouTube (27 min long). For women, listen specifically to the 10 to 13 min timeline.

Good item >> Myths of Testosterone Replacement for Women - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM3z4xFwOm0 23 min
Female Hormone Levels and Restoration - Estrogen and Progesterone: The Complete Hormonal Picture - In addition to estrogen and progesterone, it is important to monitor levels of the hormones pregnenolone, DHEA, and testosterone. Life Extension encourages females to maintain a total testosterone level of 35-45 ng/dL and a free testosterone level of 1-2.2 pg/mL.
Links about female mortality risk related to hormone levels -
Postmenopausal Hormone Replacement Reduces Mortality Risk
Conclusions of the analysis were that "After 10 years of randomized treatment, women receiving hormone replacement therapy early after menopause had a significantly reduced risk of mortality, heart failure, or myocardial infarction (heart attack), without any apparent increase in risk of cancer, venous thromboembolism (blood clots), or stroke. The mortality risk reduction was about 40%

Hunting the Edge of Space In this two-hour special, NOVA examines how a simple instrument, the telescope, has fundamentally changed our understanding of our place in the universe. Starts with a long segment on Galileo. The lens shapes are not near correct, but that's movie-making.
After almost a year, had the chance to visit Stony Ridge Observatory (SRO). A few tweaks need to be made on the control system I installed June 2015, See
To dig deeper, click on albums on that page.
The 30" scope is now controlled with Software Bisque SkyX program.
Good SkyX tutorial is "Setting Up SkyX "
It is possible to watch two or three TV programs at once by using twctv.com ... Really neat, I almost don't need my commercial killer invention, so easy to flip audio, unless I'm in other parts of the house.
This week my driveway tree leafed out, only 2/3's of it, so need to cut a big, tall portion. A new pole mounted chainsaw is purchased - see ad at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/edhiker/26824724075/

A new sense of well being was achieved by obtaining a good hormone balance. I now need only 7 hours of sleep to feel on top of the world with energy lasting all day long. Thank you, Dr Jan Yuo (Montrose) for being diligent. I have a thousand bookmarks on this subject! There are optimum levels for Testosterone and Estrogen that become more important as we get older (males and females).
My good life now has a combination of intellectual stimulation, exercise (hiking and gym), healthy eating, and social interactions. A diary of sorts, by way of pictures, is on Flickr.
Maybe time to add travel on the things to do list - Travel - Destinations on Google, https://googleblog.blogspot.com/2016/03/new-ways-to-plan-your-vacation-while-on.html
