Well, I’m back in the saddle (sort of) after my Incredible Total Knee Replacement Adventure. I’ll not bore you with the details, but so far my TKR has been a success and I am ahead of the curve on rehab. Since I’m still taking pain meds, I figure it’s a great time to make predictions about 2012. So here are my Top 10 predictions for 2012.

Prediction Number 1:
The Packers win the Super Bowl. They will beat New England in an epic game that goes down to the wire.

Prediction Number 2:
Big trouble in the Middle East. Things will come to a head this year and the results will drive up oil prices and cripple the global economy in the second half of the year.

Prediction Number 3:
President Obama gets another term. The Republicans blow it but retain a majority in the House.

Prediction Number 4:
The U.S. economy overcomes the impact of predictions 2 & 3, limps along and fairs better than many of our global competitors.

Prediction Number 5:
More crazy weather and rising commodity prices.

Prediction Number 6:
The “Occupy Wall Street” movement grows and becomes better organized.

Prediction Number 7:
Tiger Woods does not win a major.

Prediction Number 8:
The unemployment rate drops below 8% (but then edges back up).

Prediction Number 9:
We will add over $1 trillion more to the national debt.

Prediction Number 10:
The world will not end on December 21, 2012
