Overall:So, yea, I'm back?  And making my way back up in the Options ladder.  Got some additional funding, but not a lot so... lots and lots small of safe bets.  At the moment I am still heavily in the hole.  I expect to dig my way out over the several months.

Also gonna do these (or try to do these) last day of the month.  Just makes it easier since I won't be playing too many options (4 in a month give or take). 

You can see my dividends, steady as ever, giving my ample extra income to make more income!
