Barreling along Virginia's back-country roads almost an hour west of Richmond, I'm beginning to doubt we'll ever reach Farmville. It's been nearly three hours since we crossed the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in Washington and plowed down I-95, though the last 30 miles have been lovely. A gothic-looking railroad bridge rivaling a Roman aqueduct crosses the James River, then it's rolling green countryside and woods. But I'm ready to shop. A friend who is about to open an interior design business has heard about Green Front Furniture, an import business in rural Farmville that offers a huge selection of higher-end furniture, accessories and especially Oriental rugs at up to 50 percent off regular retail prices, and she is eager to check it out. I want to cover a roomful of bare floor without spending the equivalent of the national debt.

By Dave Gilmore, @dave_gilmore It's impossible to judge quality from gameplay clips, cinematic trailers and even sometimes playable demos. What can be judged though, is how excited one is to simply play the game. Now that another year of E3 has wrapped up, we know a lot more about some of the late 2012 and 2013 and beyond games we've been hearing only rumors about so far. Here are the five games from E3 we're most excited to play as of this moment. "Assassin's Creed 3" Everything about "AC3" so far has been encouraging, but the new clips at this week's show blew the doors off expectations for October's release.

More than 10 years ago this month, I discovered parts of my family tree. My search for information about my Virginia lineage arose out of a need to confirm to an acquaintance that I, in fact, had blood relatives from the Southern state. In addition, I always felt awkward and embarrassed when my white friends and colleagues would talk about their European ancestors who hailed from Ireland, Scotland and England. Outside of their being from Baltimore, I knew very little about my mother's side of the family.

Kelly Jr. of Edenton.The trial was moved to this one-blink community in Pitt County, 65 miles west of Edenton in Eastern North Carolina, because of pretrial publicity.

It used to be that only presidents had a list of their enemies, and if you were on it, it was a kind of a badge of honor - as long as you didn't mind having your tax returns regularly audited. Newsman Daniel Schorr was reading President Richard Nixon's enemies list during a live broadcast when he came across his own name. Actor Paul Newman said he considered his inclusion on that list one of his greatest achievements. "If you don't have enemies, you don't have character," Mr. Newman said at the time.

Do you want to like John Harbaugh on Facebook or follow the Ravens coach on Twitter? You do? Then I have sad news for you. Despite the efforts of Ravens Senior Vice President of Public and Community Relations Kevin Byrne, Harbaugh has no plans to join Twitter. And he thinks it's "shocking" that hundreds of millions of people have Facebook accounts. "I don’t think I’m ever going to be there on Facebook or Twitter," Harbaugh told Jerry Coleman of FOX 1370 Sports Radio late last week.

In Mafia Wars, you recruit your friends into a virtual world of organized crime. In FarmVille, you and your friends help each other tend virtual animals and plots of land. And in FrontierVille, you endeavor to build a frontier town in the Wild West. Welcome to the universe of online social games crafted by Zynga Game Network Inc. — a thriving San Francisco-based company that launched a major game design studio in Baltimore County last year. That office, known as Zynga East, was responsible in June for creating and launching FrontierVille, the company's second most popular game behind FarmVille, with nearly 35 million users.

In an incident first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Farmville police were called to Mulligan's restaurant near Longwood University, west of Richmond, where the Bears had lost a nonconference game.
