This time of year, we're up to our earlobes in lists. They're everywhere - Top 10 News Stories of 2008; Milestones; Biggest and Best; Least and Worst; Dumbest Criminals.
The year's Movies; Songs; Books; Storms; Cars; Moments in Sports; Triumphs; Tragedies. The "Year in Review" list goes on ad infinitum.
Not to be outdone, 2009 beckons. Challenges, of course, but also Predictions - and not all of them dire, thankfully.
Some "doomsday" predictions you've already heard - deepening recession, continuing mortgage crisis. But seers and mystics are gazing into their crystal balls and prophesying other events that aren't quite so cataclysmic.
In fact, some are downright heavenly.
Our friend, Judy Hevenly, Los Angeles-based psychic, author and international lecturer, has made predictions for 2009 on everything from airlines offering WI-FI to a new film studio in the San Bernardino area to a successor for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
"I meditate and think about the world and then it comes to me," said Judy, who on Feb. 9, predicted Barack Obama would be the next president of the United States.
According to Judy, featured in the book, "The 100 Top Psychics in America," a large environmental government agency could be coming to the San Bernardino area in 2009.
So here's another list - some Hevenly things to look for in 2009:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Assistance from the Obama administration for the housing and banking sectors; $100billion given to road and bridge work and $15billion a year to green tech investment, school repairs.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "A rising skating champion will become known from the Asian community in San Bernardino.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "An Asian university specializing in health and acupuncture, and training for oriental medicine to help humanity.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "New sightings of UFOs over Big Bear Lake, letting the locals know that they are not alone, that the ETs are close by, watching over them protectively.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "The ghost of Martin Luther King will hover over Presidential-elect Barack Obama on the Inauguration Day ceremony.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will become a panacea for the unemployed to visit during the recession to boost their morale and get a new outlook.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Lance Armstrong will win the Tour de France in 2009.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "There will be a peace treaty in the Middle East (2009-2010) between Israel and Palestine, with the United States and France playing an important role.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "There will be a mega summit on climate change in Copenhagen in November-December 2009, with the United States, China, Europe - a post-Kyoto agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Cell phone firms to offer free small laptop with Internet services.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Baby boy for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes; baby girl for Victoria Beckham.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "President Barack Obama to receive Nobel Peace Prize.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Andrew Cuomo could possibly be named to replace Hillary Clinton as New York senator.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ "Golden Globe winners, 2009: Best Picture - Drama, "Slumdog Millionare"; Best Animated Movie, "Wall-E"; Best Picture - Comedy, "Mama Mia"; Best Actor - Drama, Brad Pitt; Best Actress - Drama, Angelina Jolie; Best Supporting Actor, Heath Ledger; Best Supporting Actress, Penelope Cruz."
And a new trend? "Because of the USA economy, we'll see more and more children moving back again with their parents and grandparents," she predicts.
It was easier to see that one coming.
