Well heres an interesting thing.  My start apps menu just reappeared in 
full.  Up until 1225 hours it was the limited menu seen above, now it is 
  complete.  I have not tried fixing this problem since around 0800 when 
I  deleted the file in .config/menus and rebooted.  So I can assume that 
either it just took a while to self heal, or I have been hacked by a 
friendly KDE repair person =)

I appreciate everyones assistance on this issue.
