Hi all,

Our move to Jovita in Dade City is fast approaching, June 15 is the move in date. I can't wait until all of this yard selling and merciless discarding of former treasures is over. We are unloading most of our furniture here, the house is furnished.

Could someone give me a steer on good renter's insurance for the area? The furnishings are very nice and our insuring them was part of the deal and we are happy to do it.

We are very excited about being your new neighbors. We will keep the music down, not put disabled refrigerators on the front porch, and keep the wild parties to a minimum.

When we lived in Dade City, we used Boyett Insurance agency. Real nice folks there.

Thanks, Gypsychic, I sent them an e-mail at their website.

I am having trouble signing up with Tampa Electric. I filled out their website form and have had no response from them. I sent off an e-mail to let them know I had no response. They acknowledge the e-mail but have not responded to my problem. I will phone them tomorrow.

Are they normally this slow in responding or are they making an exception in my case?

Probably because it's the weekend.

Just a suggestion...I have heard people say they have renters insurance through their auto insurance company. Might want to check with them for a comparison.

Also, I thought the electricity was provided by Withlacoochie River Electric. It's been a while since I was at Lake Jovita so I'm not absolutely sure.

I had Tampa Electric when we lived there. I believe most of Dade City is served by Tpa Elec.

Go through your auto insurance company (if its a big name one), nearly all the big box auto insurance companies offer a renters policy for pretty cheap and most have a discount for "multi line", so it ends up being a few dollars a month after the discount.

I was told it was Tampa Electric by my Realtor who lives here. Apparently, A guy on the board there is a big shot with Withlacoochee and it was conflict of interest to go with Withlacoochie even though everyone wanted to. I have no idea what problem that would be.

I have renters insurance here in Ohio at a mere pittance. I anticipate that our car insurance bill, ( A Mazda 5 and a Hyundai), will be a substantially increased over what we pay now, that much I have ascertained by perusing these venerated boards. I will talk to Boyette and see if they can throw me a bone.
Having never had a pool, my ladies are having a difficult time holding off pool accessory purchases until we are actually in pool country where the supply is abundant. They are also trying to coordinate bathrooms and bedspreads at this distance. Everything we buy here we have to carry 1,067 miles. I have succesfully held off their premature nesting but am growing weary.

We have now established communication and have an account with Tampa Electric, deposit paid, ready to consume vast quantities of energy with hair dryers and straightening irons. My wife, in her usual calm and business-like demeanor, handled the phone conversations.

We were asked if we wanted Tampa Electric's Surge Protection. It caught me off guard and I put it off until later to give myself a chance to study on it. I know lightening loves Florida as much as I do and we will have a great many delicate electronic devices on the grid. I am confused as to whether the Surge Protection they provide is on the outside feed or merely surge protectors at the plug ins inside, which I will do anyway.
Anyone with experience on this? It is $70+ installation fee and $7.95 a month. Worth it?
