In this sentence is Heute acting as a noun. I know that it probably wouldn't matter in this sentence, but I am trying to get some grammar into my brain. Danke.

No, it is an adverb (of time).

AHA - Can you give me an example when Heute is used as a noun? Thanks a lot.

This is a bit off topic, but since I'm grammar challenged...a wonderful resource for explaining German grammar in a way that is easy to follow and understand is: The Everything Learning German Book by Edward Swick. In the book, he gives many examples and explanations. The book is available in many libraries, though I found it so helpful that I bought it. :)

I have the book English Grammar for Students of German, 6th edition. I just haven't started it yet.

Hmmm....after googling info on it, it sounds like it has possibilities. One reason I mentioned The Everything book is the author uses each of the pronouns with the conjugations where it is easy to see. Where some people need a picture, I need an art gallery. :)

buck72 - I looked at it (The Everything Learning German Book by Edward Swickon) on Amazon and decided to get it. I can add it to all my other German books which I don't use. But, I do intend to use them all at some point; it just takes a lot out of me - due to my learning disorder.

buck72 - I got the book today and can see it is very fundamental which is probably just what I need; to get the basic stuff down pat. Thank you.
