Dendy Macaulay <dendym@gmail.com> :

You are always assuming the random effects are zero either way--if you
don't want to, you have to generate random effects--depending on what
you want to do, you might want to do this 100 or 1000 or more times
and average across draws somehow.  What do you want to do with these
predictions?
