I wish you'd given a fuller explanation about the sun/sneezing issue. Okay so they've got a lot of visual stimulation, but why does that translate into a sneeze as opposed to some other response?

Hummm you know I noticed that myself and my family actually blink more in the presence of sunlight

I'm so glad you are addressing the sun/sneezing topic. I, and everyone in my family experience this. When we would emerge together into bright sunlight (as from church or a matinee) we would resemble some sort of strange circus act--The Sneezing Joneses. I've asked doctors, and twice queried Science Times about this, but to no avail. Thanks, and gesundheit.
