Maybe it's me, but I've noticed less of the longtime locals posting. Maybe not?

Yes....but I'm not gone yet

It seems that the nature of the forums that I have posted in tend to quiet down after a while but keep a core group that never leave.

Default For every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction

Along with the reasons previously mentioned, I believe that this forum isn’t seeing as much traffic because people in other areas don’t feel as compelled to relocate here to get their own piece of the American dream. It seems like many of those who considered moving to Raleigh in the past did so in search of “more affordable housing”, but as the price of houses continues to drop throughout the nation they no longer have to relocate to achieve that ambition. Simply stated, people in New York, New Jersey, Washington DC and California can now afford a home where they presently reside rather than having to relocate to Raleigh.

Further more, as a reaction to the influx of transplants desirable Raleigh houses aren’t the bargain that they once were although I can tell there’s still a great deal of interest in the area based on the hits certain post receive. So yeah… I guess we still have a good number of lurkers hanging here.

LOL! This is true! To keep it local: Are peanuts grown anywhere in the Triangle? Has anyone bought them at the Famer's Market? Does anyone like boiled peanuts? I have never tried them boiled!

A peanut is a legume ... a "bean" if you will. Many places in the South have "Peanut Festivals" (i.e. Dothan AL) as its an important crop.

Boiled peanuts are, well, an "acquired" taste in my opinion. Quite different from the usual roasted nuts.
