• I Do Have An Ego!

    I DO Have An Ego! I didn’t write a blog last week.  Well, I wrote it. I just didn’t post it.  And worse, I cancelled the ClassicAdams.com domain name too.  Worse than that, I tore up all the notes I had made for any forth coming blogs.  But worst of all, I did all of…

  • Lyn Almost Bowed!

    I Almost Bowed! Last Friday was a weird day. I’d performed my shows the evening before onboard a ship carrying 2,600 guests: 1600 of them were Dutch, 500 American, some Aussies and Canadians, a Kiwi and 22 Brits. It’s not unusual for me to perform in front of such a demographic. I make it work.…

  • Shall I Tell You Why?

    I am in Ålesund and it is quite possibly my favourite of the Norwegian ports of call. It has nothing to do with the sightseeing, the people or the fjords. It is solely down to the coffee.  Now if you have read enough of these blogs or know anything about me you will know I…

  • What Was His Name?

    Last Thursday I posted the blog and if you haven’t gotten around to reading it yet you can by clicking here. There was one problem. I’d written it, read it and reread it.  Lyn had read and reread it. Neither of us saw it. In fact, lots of you read it. Across the social media…

  • It’s Father’s Day!

    “Like Mother’s Day, only cheaper!”  My Dad wrote that joke decades ago and never, ever missed the opportunity to retell it.  I will stick this line into the show if I remember that Father’s Day is imminent. I wouldn’t do it throughout the year because that just wouldn’t make sense. Although I am now thinking…

  • One More!

    You will remember that I told you one of the reasons for this blog was to encourage me to write more. In fact, change that, to post more content. There, that sounds more in keeping with today’s terminology. In a perfect world I would spend most of Wednesday night writing feverishly about my previous week…

  • And What Does That Entail?

     It’s that time. A time when even the most experienced of travellers get nervous and those that rarely fly have no real idea of the importance of the next few seconds.  I was at Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal and my luggage had successfully made it through the X-ray machine and I awaited the decision. A…

  • A Classic Week

    It’s Wednesday and I am in Brighton with Lyn and my kids and have rented a small farm cottage for their half term holiday. It’s better than a hotel for me, for them too as we all get our own room. I say ‘all’, I really mean the kids get their own rooms. Not me…

  • You Got SIX 2s

    I should never have asked. I should never have posted and I really should NOT have given myself a 2. I was working a world cruise for Viking a few years ago on a brand new cruise ship with plenty of refreshing ideas and I was particularly taken by two of them. Firstly, a button…
