ARTS was is not selected and disabled.  It was disabled before and
after I did a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade.  I am really
confused how this upgrade to .18 caused the sound to stop working. 
Nothing changed except the upgrade... all was working great.  I really
don't want to go back to winhoze or do a re-install to have the same
thing happen to me down the road.  I am really frustrated with this
issue... and to boot everytime I try to go the ALSA homepage the
server seems to be down.
