    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

    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?
