  1. A friend in Birmingham, AL has been in a feud with the city over her yard. The city says she has weeds and trash in her yard. She contends it herbs and yard art. Maybe she could call it a yard show and retain her sense of style. The city wants her to clean up the “weeds,” get rid of the “trash,” and plant grass.
