I have a problem with a wed that looks like a very thin vine and it wraps itself around anything in site. It is very thin vine with small leaves at the top. Can you tell me how to get rid of this thing please...

I can't tell from your description what the vine might be. You can do a websearch on the following possibilities and maybe you can positively identify the plant: Dodder (Cuscuta and Grammica), Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea), Field Bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis). Once you figure out what the vining weed is, submit another question to this forum and we'll try to help you find the best control measure.
