%N Number of directed column-convex polyominoes having at least one 1-cell column.

%C a(n) = Fibonacci(2n-1) - A121469(n,0) (obviously, since A121469(n,k) is the number of directed column-convex polyominoes of area n having k 1-cell columns). Column 1 of A121301.

%F G.f.: z(1-z)(1-3z+2z^2)/[(1-3z+z^2)(1-2z-z^2+z^3)].

%e a(3)=4 because, with the exception of the 3-cell column, all the other four directed column-convex polyominoes of area 3 have a 1-cell column.
