• It seems nearly impossible to fathom that someone as brilliant and funny as Robin Williams could be so tortured emotionally that he takes himself out of the human race. Yet, last week, one by one, each of us across the whole globe, fixed our attention on the sad news of this beloved actor’s suicide. Sometimes, a blip of news in the vast sea of information we are bombarded with daily, seems to slap us so hard in the face that we can almost hear the collective groan rippling through space and time.

  • It was October 1995 when Jim Dille handed me a $10 bill to sign up for Internet service as our first customer. From 28.8k to 56k to broadband, the ride this industry and community have provided has been fun even with all the bumps along the way. As I bow my head to the LORD, I will be giving Thanks for the past 15 years and the next fifteen. May God bless you and your family. Brian

It was so good I had to offer a portion to my dinner guests and they too agreed that it was unlike any other chicken sandwich. Stop by the Exotic Grill and tell them semo.net sent you to try out their Elmer Fudd. You'll be glad you did.
