It's largely a database performance issue but the most common way to fix it is to install the W3 Total Cache plugin and turn on page caching. That will cache the assembled html on the server so it doesn't have to query the database to assemble the page for every visitor.
I ran the 5 test and FTTB went up as far as 8 seconds.
Thanks, Pat. It is a ded. server and is heavily modified WordPress. I'll try W3TC. I'm trying to find extensive documentation on it that explains it as IT is peculiar on adding plug-ins.

BTW, I used WePageTest on another site and found by changing some code to JavaScript (an ad) I brought down FTTB by 3 seconds. This site is fantastic!
