SUBJECT: New Web Site Domain Names

We have just registered three new domain names, which we shall

use for the new Web sites we are building for the new juice

product, Joosey Juice. The domain names we have registered are

jooseyjuice.com, jooseyjuice.biz, and jooseyjuice.net. We are also

sites will have a substantial number of links to other sites for

nutrition education, fun and games for young children, and plant

science, particularly regarding fruit trees. Furthermore, each site

will include a page for staff news and updates. The URL for the

staff page on jooseyjuice.com will be
