Fun Brain Twister

It's a rainy day here in Michigan so here's what I've been trying to
do for the past hour or so:

Use six 7's to write an expression that has a value of 110. I know 
it's possible but my mind has just about burnt out.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

How about: 777/7 - 7/7 ?
