Looking for a website

I'm wondering if any of you can help me locate a website! I'm sure that I found out about this site on Proteacher, but now I can't remember the link!

This site had real life math problems and different problems that kids could work out. When the movie Tangled came out, there were problems about how long hair could grow and if the length of her was realistic.

If I remember correctly, another set of problems on it had to do with raking leaves and how much money a boy could make if they could do a yard in a certain amount of time.

Sound familiar to anyone? If so, please share the link with me! I'm looking for ways to engage some 4th & 5th graders with real life math examples.

I think the site you are referring to might be Yummy Math.
There is a question in the archives ~ November 2010 (when Tangled was released) that relates to Repunzel's hair. I think the leaf question is directly below it.
