custom change monitors in net 4.0 using system.runtime.caching

hello experts.
I am currently using system.runtime.caching to cache some lists in my program.  I know that this also supports the ability to create my own custom policy or monitor.  I need to create my own custom monitor.  basically I want to invalidate the cache if an execution number has changed.  For instance the program starts and will have an execution number of 1, when I load the list and cache it i want to increment the execution number to 2, if that execution number changes to 3 i want to invalidate the cache and reload it from the database.  

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?  Perhaps  a start would be helpful, I don't even know how to create a custom monitor yet.
