I've just received a Basic Med.  I also filled out a medxpress application because I may wish to fly through canada. 

If I don't go through with the 3rd class physical I understand the medxpress submission will be deleted in 30 days.  Otherwise it is retained permanently.  Would this affect my basic med or will my current 3rd class just expire as normal without affecting the 3rd class?

The Sweepstakes Rules state: "Potential winners will be notified within ten (10) days by email, mail, commercial courier, or by phone. Three attempts will be made to contact potential prize winners within a ten (10) day period."

So how is it possible to surprise the winner by showing up with the aircraft?

What is the purpose of having potential Canadian winners answer a time limited mathematical skill-testing quiz?

Just curious.
I am curious what happens to someone who cannot pass the color blindness part of a Class III FAA physical.  I have perfect color vision, but was just curious. It seems that the color blindness test involves the ability to see light gun signals from the tower in event of a radio failure.  Is this really necessary these days? 
There isn't a separate column in my logbook for solo time (as differentiated from PIC time with a passenger). Should I add one and keep track of it? Are there any ratings or certifications that require solo time? Or am I fine just logging solo time and time with a passenger as the same kind of time (PIC)?
