More than 10 years have elapsed since the conference, “Computational Science for the Twentieth Century”, was held in Tours, France. The Tours event honored the 60th birthday of Roland Glowinski. The world has witnessed many changes in the last decade, but Roland and his lovely wife, Angela, seem to barely have changed at all. Indeed, they are like fine French wine or Tennessee whiskey; they improve with age. As we reflect upon the career of Roland, it is important that we not underestimate the role of Angela. Everyone knows the old saying, Beside every great man stands a great woman.
