Hint: Using Google for Spelling

I had a brain freeze today and couldn't, for the life of me, spell the word "alley". So I opened up my OS X dictionary and and started to type "al". Nothing that looked right. I tried ally but that wasn't what I wanted either.

After some thinking I wondered if I put the phrase, "in a dark ally" into Google if it would suggest the correct spelling. Sure enough, it did. So, if you can't figure out how to spell a word, but can put it in a phrase or sentance, then try Google for a spell dictionary.
