I got side tracked after I sent my email and just a while ago I found 
the problem.

System > Preferences > Sound -> Everything is set to Autodetect.
That isnt what it used to be on my system before the upgrade.
I found my sound card (Intel 82801DB-ICH4) on the list and then things 
started to work. I did it on each (sound events, music and movies, audio 
conferencing) and everything started to work. Then I clicked close. 
Within a few minutes, after checking email and talking on the phone, I 
had no sound again. So out of curosity, I went back and all the sections 
were back to Autodetect... so I changed them again. This time I clicked 
Test next to each one and then clicked close. I still have sound after 1 
hour - so that is great! But it is very odd that I have to push Test to 
lock that selection in.

I havent tried googles/Goggles yet ( :) ) but I might.
