Cash Money: $6,650 in April Income and Blog Updates

DSCF3404Before I get started on my monthly income update, I want everyone to take a moment to look at the picture of my garage on the left.  That, my friends, is the garage of my dreams.  It’s clean.  It’s organized.  It’s the envy of the neighborhood.  Well, maybe not.  But it does look good, right?  It isn’t fancy, but it is functional.  I like it.
