I've seen this in a lot of post, but haven't been able to figure out what it stands for and it's driving me crazy. (Yea I know, short trip?) So can anyone tell me what TPTB is?

 

Thanks,

Kate

Thank you so much Karen.  I had my thinking locked in on a PBS specific team or something. Boy do I feel silly. I will get over it though.

That is funny!  What's even funnier is that there's a book listed on their bookshelf.   smiley

@Kate:  no problem.  We all have those "now it makes sense" moments!
