The Global Toast - 9pm Canberra time (AEST) on Monday 31st January. 5am Canada and USA Eastern states, 8am Brazil, 10am England, 5pm Thailand and Laos.

Around the world, Charlie's friends joined together at the same time and raised their glasses of beer, wine, whisky, orange juice, tea, coffee, water, coconut juice to celebrate Charlie.

In Charlie's words, from his December 2004 end-of-year party,

"Let us celebrate, commiserate, reminisce, reflect, forget, laugh, cry, deny, defy, smell the roses, hug your friends, dance, blob, drown your sorrows, toast new tomorrows, share silver linings, make fresh resolutions, plan new revolutions, sing your heart-song and eat, drink and be merry."

To Charlie, may his spirit soar through all of us.
