CFO Jeff Atwater Announces Arrest of Three North Florida Roofers for Unlicensed Insurance Activity…



   Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater announced today the

   arrests of Derek Shawn Kellog, 31,Crawfordville; Corey Jermaine        Brownlee, 30,  Jacksonville; and Sean McCaslin, 49,   

   Tallahassee;employees of Roofmasters, Inc., for acting as

   unlicensed public adjusters while soliciting  homeowners for
   roof repairs in the Tallahassee area. 

   An investigation by the Department of Financial Services’
   Division of Insurance Fraud revealed that Roofmasters, Inc.,
   based in Jacksonville, used high-pressure sales tactics and
   informed homeowners they were "insurance specialists“
   and could assist them in dealing with their insurance
   companies.  Company literature notes that homeowners
   may be entitled to a new roof with no out-of-pocket
   expense.  Roofmasters, Inc. submitted an insurance claim 
   on behalf of a homeowner, violating Florida law. 
   Kellog, Brownlee and McCaslin were booked into Leon
   County Jail.  If convicted, they each face up to 5 years
   in prison. 

   CFO Atwater encourages Floridans to ‘Verify Before
   You Buy’ to ensure that the insurance adjuster, agent
   or company you are dealing with is licensed to transact
   business in Florida.

   Anyone with information of suspected insurance fraud
   is asked to call 800-378-0445.  Citizens who provide tips
   can remain anonymous. The Department of Financial
   Services to date has awarded almost $275,000 to more
   than 40 citizens as part of its Anti-Fraud Reward Program.
   The program rewards individuals up to $25,000 for
   information that directly leads to an arrest and conviction
   in an insurance fraud scheme.

  • News to me.......I hope to never need to try it.

  Keep a bag of flour in your fridge


Impressive! Why didn't we ever hear of this before??!! I've always just run it under the cold water tap.


A woman's experience with burns . . .

Some time ago I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water....A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just as I was screaming, and asked me if I had some plain old flour... I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes which I did.


He said that in Vietnam, there was a guy on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...Well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister!!!!


... Long story short, I put my hand in the bag of

flour for 10 mins, pulled it out and did not even

have a red mark or a blister and absolutely NO

PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself. *Cold flour feels even

better than room temperature flour.


I use the flour and have never ONCE had I ever

had even a red spot/burn mark, or a blister! I even burnt my tongue once, put the flour on it for about

10 minutes .... The pain was gone and no burn.


Try it . . . Experience a miracle! Keep a bag of

flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did!


BTW, don't run your burn area under cold water

first, just put it directly into the flour for 10 minutes.


Random thoughts as we age ...


The biggest lie I tell myself is...
"I don't need to write that down,
I'll remember it."


Wouldn't it be great if we could put
ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes
and come out wrinkle-free and three|
sizes smaller!


Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven't met yet!


I don't trip over things, I do random
gravity checks!


Old age is coming at a really bad time!


Lord grant me the strength to accept
the things I cannot change, the courage
to change the things I can and the
friends to post my bail when I finally


I don't have gray hair...
I have "wisdom highlights". 
I'm just very wise.


My people skills are just fine...
it's my tolerance to idiots that needs work.


If God wanted me to touch my toes,
he would've put them on my knees.


The kids text me "plz" which is
shorter than please. I text back
"no" which is shorter than "yes".


I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that
second week...


Even duct tape can't fix stupid...
but it can muffle the sound!


Why do I have to press one for English when you're just gonna transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?


Of course I talk to myself--
sometimes I need expert advice.


Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?


At my age "getting lucky" means
walking into a room and remembering
I what I came in there for.


Chocolate comes from cocoa which is
a tree...
that makes it a plant which means...
....chocolate is Salad!!!
