    I = subject of sentence/ pronoun subject & had a conference = predicate of sentence
    had = past action verb
    a= article for noun conference
    conference= direct object of verb had

    Re: Simple Sentence

    What is THAT?

    It reminds me of something my neighbor likes to say of me as a carpenter, i.e. "Never make something simple that can be made complicated."

    I do not know. I found it in my grandmother's attic in a dusty old book titled '1000 Japanese knitting patterns'. Looks cool, does it not?
